Manchester School of Theatre presents Tom Stoppard’s Arcadia, directed by David Salter.
Tom Stoppard’s absorbing play takes us back and forth between centuries and explores the nature of truth and time, the difference between the Classical and the Romantic temperament, and the disruptive influence of sex on our orbits in life – ‘the attraction that Newton left out.’
‘There probably isn’t a more dazzlingly cerebral play of the last 50 years than Tom Stoppard’s 1993 masterpiece. It’s spray apothegms come as thick and fast as its ideas, but if there’s a single line to be seized on in this show…it’s the realisation that “it’s wanting to know that makes us matter”. More interesting and important than knowledge itself, Stoppard suggests, is the desire for knowledge…’ (The Guardian)
